Tough Love Sock

My day in the store started later than normal this morning. We had quite a bit of freezing rain over night. The trees look beautiful but the roads didn't.
The crackling noise is very loud outside of the store right now.
A shipment is on the way from SweetGeorgia with lots of Tough Love Sock. There are four new spring colours coming. Right now the shipment is scheduled to arrive on Tuesday afternoon.
A perfect blend of warmth and strength to make a hardwearing sock yarn that can stand up to your affection and abuse. Tough Love Sock is our best-selling yarn and knits up beautifully into fine-gauge sweaters, small shawls, as well as socks! Spun from 80% superwash and super soft merino and 20% nylon, this 3-ply yarn is so versatile — knit it firmly for hard wearing socks, knit it loosely for drapey shawls, or knit it doubled for a great worsted weight substitute. Suggested gauge for sock knitting: US 0-1 (2-2.25mm) | 8 sts/1″
80% superwash merino wool, 20% nylon 425 yards / 388m
Here are some suggestions for Tough Love Sock

With delicate leaves of lace and texture, this infinity scarf is a gorgeous display of elegance and colour. Whether worn long for style or doubled up for warmth, you’ll love the lightweight feel and casual sophistication.

The colours from the Party of Five set gradually, and beautifully, create a gradient that is both rich and subtle. Textural stitches enhance the effect while promising a knit that is luscious in its squishy, lightweight comfort.
